If you have been in a slump wondering how to make your days feel a little bit fresher, I have four beauty tips that will keep your days starting and ending on a good note. Every morning is a struggle to get out of bed on time, which ends up in less time getting ready for work. That means that I have my routine DOWN. Most days I can be ready in 30 minute, tops. Here are my tips to keep you going, looking good, and feeling on top of the world throughout the work day.

4 Ways to Have a Good Day
1. Set your clothes out the night before I started practicing the habit of laying out my clothes the evening before in middle school. I learned that while I valued looking cute, I also valued my sleep. If one of those didn't happen, my day was bound to start off grumpy. It was a huge game changer in my morning routine when I had my clothes prepped the night before. No more frustrating clothing changes, or uncomfortableness causing anxiety. In fact, my outfits were more stylish and put together because I was able to think them through instead of rush. More sleep + feeling cute = better days!

2. Stay fresh with Dove Deodorant I must admit, I have forgotten deodorant on a couple of rough start days. This only lead to embarrassment later when a sudden body odor was whiffed... Making sure that I apply Dove Advanced Care Antipersperant helps my day go as planned. Not only does it smell good as soon as I put it on, but Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection plus added skincare benefits of Dove ¼ moisturizers and NutriumMoisture for softer, smoother underarms.

3. Always moisturize This is a real biggie! If I want to make sure I will feel my best throughout the day, I always make sure to moisturize! My face is the number one place I put hydrating cream, but I am a big advocate for daily moisturizer everywhere. Not only will your face, legs, arms, and hands feel healthy, but it will keep your skin bright and prevent aging!

4. Bring backup makeup The best trick ever is to be able to touchup your makeup throughout the day! I love being able to reach into my bag and get rid of the shine with blotting paper or a touch of concealer. If you plan on spending the day out and about, definitely bring some makeup to fix your look throughout the night!
